The monkeypox vaccine supply in the Bay Area is running low as cases uptick, according to a Mercury News report.

Monkeypox cases have risen to almost 100 in the Bay Area, with 17 located in Alameda County. According to Lisa Hernandez, Berkeley health officer, the city of Berkeley was designated 270 doses of the monkeypox vaccine, but the doses are already running low.

The state of California will be designated 14,000 doses by the end of the week and should expect 9,000 more by the end of the month, as first reported by Berkeleyside.
